Samples kinda sounds like a garbage we heard on older Pixels, but there is still a chance it's just a bad sample video in article.

I agree with the bezels are fine but they are bigger than most other phone even if you compare it with Xiaomi Mi A2
Anonymous, 07 May 2019who will buy this? ok maybe americans but I find it hard to belive that Europe or Asia will ju... moreYeah that's right for Asia & Europe market the Xiaomi A series is a better deal in my country Xiaomi Mi A2 is just $160.
And if the upcoming Mi A3 comes with NFC it can be the best phone for anyone who want pure android experience with afordable price.
So, no SD710 for the Pixel 3a XL... Kinda disappointed by that...even though all earlier rumours suggested as sporting sd710...
Anonymous, 07 May 2019because flagships like mi 9 has wireless charging and cost almost same with this phoneYeah, but that's a flagship with a flagship chip with glass on the back
This was a pretty forgiving review, given that there are many competitors offering better products at a lower price.
nexus 4, nexus 5, nexus 6p best phones Google gave us...
Bring back nexus range = latest features great price/value for money.

A S10e with 5.8" only have 142mm or Mi 9SE 5.97" display with only 147.5mm of large. They have not made the least effort in design. They've gone to the cheapest thing they could find.
No water proofing is a killer for me, but what is wrong with a polycarbonate back? In fact, I bought the Sony XZ2 Compact partly because it had one and is thus less fragile than the XZ3.
As for the bezels, they are not large; that's an exaggeration.
who will buy this? ok maybe americans but I find it hard to belive that Europe or Asia will jump on this phone. since will sell for like 450 euros.
I think the Pixel 2XL would be a better deal even if it's a refurbished one
Maybe I'm in the minority bit big thumbs up for the plastic body - finally a practical construction in the mid-range phones!
On the other hand, the big bezels look really a bit dated. It is quite bearable in case of Pixel 3a XL, but the Pixel 3a looks really old. Some waterproofness would be nice to have, but the cost had to be cut down somewhere :(

"A proper telephoto zoom lens wouldn't hurt, either" Exactly, I want a periscope tele. Otherwise instead of a 2x = 50mm camera a better solution could be a 48 megapixel sensor with good 48 megapixel results. Huawei's Ultra Clarity mode has shown that decent 48 megapixel results are possible and Night Sight works in the same way as Huawei's Ultra Clarity, so I would expect the results to be better. Sony's 48 megapixel sensor doesn't have dual pixel autofocus, but that's not an issue. They can simply add an additional camera with dual pixel autofocus (or a depth camera). Furthermore Huawei cameras don't have dual pixel autofocus either.
Anonymous, 07 May 2019because flagships like mi 9 has wireless charging and cost almost same with this phoneAnd not only that. The design count too. If you are asking that much. at least. invest in design if your hardware is crap for the price but that one is the most dated they could have reselled/ordered, who know which manufacture is doing that. HTC perhaps? Zero investment in design too.
The have ordered the most cheap components you can find today for the prices they ask. So they are one of the most overpriced phones out there now. And more when even its flagship brothers have a lot discount everywhere too. With the same software updates, which don't justify their prices too.
Even their cameras are today below what Mi9 and others offer with several and better ones. If you don't have other alternative in US thanks to the bans ok. But in the rest of the world there are a lot better alternatives, cheaper and at the same price.
